Decatur County REMC Awards $1,000 to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry

The Decatur County REMC recently awarded Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry a grant from the Operation Roundup Community Trust to be used to serve Decatur County residents. “The grant provided by the Decatur County REMC Operation Roundup Community Trust will pay to process over 800 pounds of donated large game and livestock – providing almost 3,300 more meals through area hunger-relief agencies to residents in need within their communities,” said Treesh. In the last eight years, Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry has helped to distribute approximately 1.4 million pounds of meat to Indiana food banks, providing over 5.5 million meals to Hoosiers in need. “To date, we have 87 participating meat processors working throughout Indiana to aid us in our mission and to ensure residents in need are served,” shared Amber Zecca, Fund Development Director of Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry. “Over the last year, this program was able to process over 2,000 pounds for Decatur County. This nutritious protein was given to and distributed by Greensburg Community Bread of Life, St. Mary’s Pantry, and Westport Christian Church – providing over 6,500 more meals!”Pictured: Community Trust Board Members – Bonita Hellmich, Ellen Davis, Sue Hahn.
